Industrial Agents' 2K donation for South West RNLI

Money will be spent on seven new lifejackets for charity’s regional search and rescue service

Bristol, 2nd February, 2012 - A group of property experts have made a splash by raising £2,000 for the South West branch of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI).
The money was donated by the Industrial Agents Society for the South West and raised through various events, including an auction and raffle.

Accepting the cheque for £2,000 on behalf of the RNLI, Iain Wightwick said the money would be spent on seven new lifejackets for the region.

“We save many lives along our coastlines and waterways every year yet many people do not realise that we depend entirely on charitable donations to be able to keep the service running,” he said.

“We’re very grateful to the Industrial Agents Society for their kind donation and rest assured it will be put to good use with the new lifejackets it has enabled us to purchase.”

Chris Miles, Associate Director at property consultants Jones Lang LaSalle and Chairman of the Industrial Agents Society for the South West, said: “The RNLI run their search and rescue operations along our coasts and inland waterways 24/7 and I’m delighted we were able to help them in this way as they do an amazing job protecting lives on a tiny budget wholly reliant on donations.”
